FORT WORTH – TEXO honored TDIndustries Senior Superintendent David Hollowell with its Specialty Superintendent of the Year award at its Holiday Award Gala on Dec. 12. Recipients demonstrate technical ability, team-building skills, quality/project success, and personal character.
Hollowell, a 42-year Partner, was also part of a group to receive a Distinguished Building Award for the Frost Tower project. His dedication to his work there, as well as his leadership, earned him the individual award.
“David believes in honest and transparent communication that supports the team and produces results, while encouraging growth opportunities for his fellow Partners,” Production Manager Mike Feagan said. “He is effective at identifying potential issues before they become a problem, and if issues do arise, he is quick to offer a solution while staying open-minded to other ideas that might work better.”
Hollowell started as a sheet-metal helper more than four decades ago. Now a senior superintendent in Fort Worth, he has four national ABC Excellence in Construction Eagle awards to his name. During his 42 years with TD, Hollowell has helped develop many future leaders through valuable mentoring opportunities. In addition to his work at Frost Tower, David has made important contributions to many significant TD projects such as Momentum Place, Acme Brick Headquarters, The Kimbell Art Museum, and several buildings on TCU’s campus, among many other successful jobs.
Frost Tower is Fort Worth’s first skyscraper in 20 years. The city’s seventh tallest building, it is 25 stories tall, and doesn’t skimp on amenities. It’s the first Class-AA-plus office tower in 10 years, and features 250,000 sf of office space, an open sky lobby, full service high-tech meeting facilities, and other high-end fixtures.
The site comprised two city blocks with no lay-down area, where a tight schedule made planning challenging. Hollowell met this challenge through long days, Lean planning, and servant leadership. He effectively mentored Partners, identified solutions for potential work slowdowns, coordinated work packages, led innovative solution efforts, grew relationships with customers, and even assisted the owner with an additional project.
TD congratulates Hollowell for this accolade, and for continuing to lead with a servant’s heart.
